    Default College Orientation

    Today was orientation for the college I'll be start next week. We have to wear scrubs to class and they're all color-coded. Like the scrubs I picked up today are a teal color, for Medical Billing and Coding. I met a lot of people and I got a lot of phone numbers...probably won't remember any names even tomorrow. I'm feeling overwhelmed right now. This is an accelerated course. There's so much to learn in so little time. My ex-husband's wife has been coding for over 17 yrs. She sent me a message on Facebook yesterday saying if I ever needed any help... Wow! That blew me away!

    I've set a goal for myself. Going to school was something that my Mom really wanted me to do. I know she's happy that I've finally gotten off my lazy back end and signed up. For her, and for me, I want to graduate with honors. That means I've really got to work hard. But I can do it! I'm very intelligent! I can graduate with honors!

    I have a homework assignment for the weekend. The school needs to connect my name on my high school diploma to the name I'm using today. OMG! I'm been married and divorced 4 times!!! So I have to send away for marriages certificates for 4 marriages, but I only need a divorce decree from one. Still, that's a lot of dates to remember.

    Monday night it starts for real! Seven months of intense studying.

    Please, pray for me. I'm nervous.

    I love you all!

    You'll do great! I'm in college right now, been going for 18 months. I went ten years ago for 2 years so I'm on the downhill. Paper work at the beginning is a lot but after that its FASA once a year. Hang in there!!!

    Good luck, and stick with it! Accelerated courses can be quite a challenge.

    My daughter works in a hospital as a pharmacy tech, and they wear teal/ green scrubs. Helps the patients know who is taking care of them, and the doctors know who to boss around!

    You'll do it, you have the determination. You are doing it because you really want to, not because you feel as though you have to, that makes a huge difference. Make your mum proud but even more importantly make yourself proud. I wish you the very best of luck!

    Life is like a party. You invite a lot of people; some go, some join you, some laugh with you, some didnít come. But in the end, after the fun, there would be a few who would clean up the mess with you. And most of the time, those were the uninvited ones.
